Sometimes called a court sword or dress sword this beauty was typical of affluent 17th and 18th century society and its forerunners would have seen many successful duels. This reproduction dates from the 1780's (or so), and is copied from one in a private collection (tip of the tricorne to T.C. of the Black Boar Swordsmanship School for dating assistance). Features include a highly detailed classic hilt with a three bar guard and a wire wrapped grip, and a lightning fast hand forged fully tempered high carbon steel blade. The nickel-plated hilt and scabbard fittings have floral etchings that match the sword's etched ricasso. The leather scabbard has a belt clip and chains so the sword hangs properly when worn. A perfect accessory for the elegant killer.
